4th of July

We had a pretty relaxed 4th of July. We took the boys to go see Cars 2 (thanks Bryan for hooking us up with free tickets!!) and spent time together as a family. That evening we went to our friend's house for a BBQ and some fireworks.
Ken and I are explaining what a sparkler is and how to use it. (Oh and for those who have asked for a picture, that blue mini van is the one we recently purchased).
The kids weren't really into the sparklers. Abraham was very worried he was going to burn his fingers.
The kids started out interested in fireworks...
And ended up terrified. This is the adults doing our best to convince them that fireworks are fun and exciting.
We are so privileged to live in our free country. We are grateful to those who risk their lives and serve our country. Happy Independence Day!!!

Looks like fun, it is hard to see the van because of that lady that looks like she is going to pop is standing in front of it. Just kidding (hope you are in the mood to laugh). Can't wait to visit.
